I suggest that we clearly delineate the RFCs which were pre-deadline from 
the ones that are post-deadline.  The advantage to having the original 
deadline was that it motivated many of us to get off our butts and fish or 
cut bait.  If we're going to continue this process now, I move that:

New RFCs be numbered starting from 1000 (easiest way to denote the difference);

Old RFCs are frozen, and that means frozen.  I have no idea how far Larry's 
got on digesting them and I really don't want to try and interfere with 
something that could be making its way down his small intestine.  People 
should be free to write new RFCs that contradict older ones, or head off on 
some tangent, but please let's not keep refining the old ones, enough is
